Charity paddle Bala to Chester

Post by leenovice2012 » Sun Jan 15, 2012 10:04 am

Hi all,
New member here.
I am organising a sponsored canoe from Bala to Chester over the bank holiday weekend (4th - 7th May)which will be in aid of Alder Hey Childrens hospital.
The people who are doing it have a real affinity with Alder Hey as some of them have young family members who are still being treated there but the problem is they have no real experience of canoeing. The idea is for around 12 people to do it in 3 man canoes, the benefit of this is that they can share the paddling and we can also ensure that each canoe has an experienced canoeist.
This is obviously a fantastic cause and would be a brilliant challenge to undertake so we are looking to see whether we can get any assistance from any experienced paddlers on this forum.
At the moment we have 2 experts who have indicated they will do it but we need at least another couple and obviously need the actual kit that is required to enable us to do it safely and succesfully (canoes, wetsuits, PPE).
I appreciate that this is a big commitment but is there anyone out there who might be up for the challenge and can help us out at the same time ?

Thanks in advance for any help you can give

Lee
